Homespun Heart

So I plied up my first skein of spinning wheel wool.

It yielded about 30 yards, of "super bulky" which isn't
useful for very much, but I still wanted SOMETHING
to turn it into.

With the help of SimpleKnits I found this great little
pattern for felted (really fulled) heart that I had more than
enough yarn for.

The pattern is free one called Heartfelt on Berroco's website

And worked up pretty quickly. Used
about half of my mini skein and now
I've got this cute little heart.

Stuffed it with some non-spinnable
wool and threw it in the laundry.

I'm thinking it's destined for a pincushion more than anything else.
